Description

the "comment" field while logging time for any issue should be mandatory. It would be highly profitable for us if this can be achieved in the next version.

thanks!

p.s. This is a fantastic application, really appreciate the work you guys are doing here!

  • Subject changed from Comments field should be mandatory to Option to make time log comments field mandatory

I think that making it optional would be better.

or at least we can make it mandatory from application settings or something. We in our organization need all time loggers to submit comments...

#3 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang almost 8 years ago

That's what I was saying, an option in application settings to make comments mandatory.

Our organization needs this option too. Is it available in 1.0.1 version?

Please don't assign issues to people.

I've written a plugin that makes all comments required on time entries. It should be a good enough workaround for the next several months at least.

+1, while a plugin is fine, since comments are used in details in reports, and other plugins use the same comment capabilities for other time entry plugins, it would be nice, if it is a minor change to have this as part of core, otherwise plugins have to be aware of other plugins. As an example, the plugin Eric has won't work with the issue hot buttons plugin which can have an option to include comments for time entry.

I often forgot to log my time when updating an issue. If I don't want to log time, could "0" value be accepted to log "no time" ?

Has there been any update on this functionality yet? Eric's plugin for 4 years ago was made for Redmine 1.x, and does not work for Redmine 2.x

I would appreciate if I could make, instead of comments, the issue id mandatory.
In my company, people sometimes forget to select the issue and the time entry gets not-associated to anything.

I've added a patch in #24577 which implements this.
